    Finally figured out what Butch was talking about all this time. Evaporative.. cooling..
    Dropped my lights down an entire foot. I figured the temps would become a problem, but the results were quite the opposite.
    Temps have actually come down, humidtiy is up, and the light is bright.


    Here you can see the neps in the corner. 8 T5HO's not far above..
    There are two fans behind 2 humidifiers. Both blowing into that corner, across the lights, but not on them.
    The large AC unit is only set to "fan" on the highest level during the daytime. At night I switch it to "cool" on the lowest strength level. Temps at night dip into the 50*s with 85% to 90% humidity. And as of now the daytime temps are.. well.. see for yourself.












    And a few capes from root cuttings.
    First up is a new clone of Bain's Kloof (from root cuttings) donated by a generous someone.




    These are Bain's Rocket (from root cuttings) donated by the same person.



    And can't forget my 2nd generation cape giants from root cuttings.

    So just the air movement cools it down? What are your room temps?

    Less than 2ft.
    If I start noticing leaf burn, I'll slide a piece of plexi-glass under the lights for diffusion.

    Cool, let me know how it works out for you and I may consider lowering my lights, too.
